From my perspective, I believe that everyone can make a different protecting our environment if we determine to do it. As me, I can save the plastic bags to reuse and turn off the unnecessary equipment such as lights, TV, radio or my laptop. Besides that, I neither waste the water nor enlighten too many candles on the special occasion.
In fact, each person do a little good thing will make a huge different for our environment. Because all of us live in the Earth, we need to protect it to survive. If we think it is just a problem of someone and everyone thinks the same, the problem will become more and more serious. Why do not we adapt to use paper bags instead of plastic bags?
- If just 25% of U.S families used 10 fewer plastic bags a month, we would save over 2.5 BILLION bags a year.
- Plastic waste in coastal areas kills up marine mammals, 1 million sea birds and countless fish annual increasing numbers of Endangered Species.
I have some tiny ideas about possible solutions:
Each person put trash into the garbage cart.
Some environmental organization deliver a lot of posters that mention the problems of trash in the ocean, the bad impacts to our lives, particularly water, in the public places such as hospitals, schools or libraries. The posters should have some terrible numbers of died birds, epidemic to warn people. In the meanwhile, some volunteering teams go to these islands to solve directly by collecting the garbage.
COASTAL CLEANUP DAY is the interesting program that I recommend. You can know more information here:
